The many voices of Dartmouth

Ann Harris, John Hodgson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores the seminal 1966 Dartmouth Conference and its significance for English teaching in both the UK and North America highlighting the range of contributions present. It explores not only the two key texts which were published as a result of Dartmouth: Herbert Muller’s The Uses of English and John Dixon’s Growth through English but also reviews unpublished papers that represent the variety of opinion, ideas and issues about English teaching and learning which emerged as a result of the diversity of context and of perspectives shared by conferring and, at times, conflicting voices.
